Echolong report (3, Informative)

Seeteufel (1736784) | about 2 years ago | (#42287557)

From the Conclusions on the Echolong investitigation of the European Parliament [] :

29. Urges the Commission and Member States to devise appropriate measures to promote, develop and manufacture European encryption technology and software and above all to support projects aimed at developing user-friendly open-source encryption software; 30. Calls on the Commission and Member States to promote software projects whose source text is made public (open-source software), as this is the only way of guaranteeing that no backdoors are built into programmes; 31. Calls on the Commission to lay down a standard for the level of security of e-mail software packages, placing those packages whose source code has not been made public in the ‘least reliable’ category;

If only Russian officials had listened.
